Browse market data tables and in-depth TOC on WiMAX-TDD/FDD Spectrum Analysis and Global Forecast (2011-2016) This report studies the global WiMAX market, and is segmented into equipment, services, and end-user devices market for the period 2011-2016. The global WiMAX equipment market is expected to grow from $1.92 billion in 2011 to $9.21 billion in 2016, representing a CAGR of 36.83%, while the service market is estimated to grow from $4.65 billion in 2011 to $33.65 billion in 2016, registering a CAGR of 48.56%, thereby indicating positive growth. There is an urgent need for raising standards of living of the rural areas worldwide. This need for broadband connectivity has long been prevailing in these untapped regions; but off late, has stirred up even more due to the growing needs of businesses and individuals. Apart from this, government bodies, along with the other organizations, have identified the need to facilitate these regions with basic services such as education and healthcare through e- Learning, e-Governance, and e-Medicine. WiMAX has gained immense support from vendors such as Alvarion and Samsung, who are seeing enormous opportunity in this market, owing to its operational flexibility. This has, in turn, increased its popularity, thereby driving this market towards lower prices, promising gradual ease in economies of scale. The operators have wide flexibility in terms of operable bandwidth (spectrum), duplexing techniques (FDD and TDD), and portability options. In terms of unit shipments, the 3.5 GHz band is the most preferred one globally, as it is suitable for fixed broadband. As WiMAX was initially deployed for fixed broadband, most of the deployments and equipment were made in the 3.5 GHz band; as such higher frequency bands are preferred for fixed broadband. With the rising need for enhanced portability and mobility, WiMAX is now revolutionizing its way through the mobile space, hence enforcing regulators worldwide to make lower bands such as 2.3 GHz available for auctions.
